Other Penalties: Ballard received a roughing.
Typical Perry. Jumps Ballard after declining to go man-to-man several times. I give it a draw because it would have been a draw at best if Ballard had a chance to get his gloves off. Ballard easily won (90%+) their past two fights. I guess Perry decided the only way to beat him was to jump him. You "a fight is a fight" idiots must be either Anaheim homers or Canuck haters. The fact that Ballard didn't even get a fighting major says it all. In fact, it should have been a double minor for roughing and a GM to Perry.
Perry has no guts. Van lost the game last week, ahh well, they knew it was one game and had to get used to playing again. They did nothing dirty, or tried going after anyone. Perry, thinks he is tough and tries to get Edler to go with him earlier in the third.... Edler sees no point with the score, and someone above was right. Edler would of caved Perry's face in. Perry continues and tries going after hansen? Hansen doesn't fight ever, not his game but good try Perry. So in a last ditch effort to get the sad Anaheim fans some money's worth in their equally embarassing home opener as was Vancouvers.... he mugs Ballard. Weak move. He'll pay for it again. Ballard tuned him last few times (given the opportunity to know he was going to fight) makes a big difference. Ripping gloves off quickly and hitting someone unsuspecting is not a fight. This was not a fight. This was dirty. Exactly why he got 5 and Ballard got 2. Notice Perry did not try to go after Kassian, Volpatti, Bieksa, or Weise. Perry gets the loss for this not being a fight. And for him just being a complete plug.
Corey Perry is a douche! What a classless move by one of the biggest cowards in the NHL. Why didn't he ask Bieksa, Kassian, or even LaPierre to go? Early running for Coward of the Year award!
Corey Perry, simply put, is a douche.
Ballard needed a few slaps, always a good day when a Canuck gets smacked
Perry was frustrated and was looking for a dance partner. Ballard happened to get in his way and got his gloves off, but that's as far as he got. No excuses for Ballard here, here's a rugged dman that's been in his fair share of scraps. Win Perry.
Perry decides that down 4-0, it's time to fight. After Hansen declines the invitation, Perry elects not to give Ballard an option. Perry wins, I guess, if winning is grabbing a guy and punching him until the linesmen step in.
Where's the response to the mugging? That's why Vanc will always be considered a pus*sy-ass team. Perry probably jumped him for Ballard tackling him about a year ago.
You have to think this is embarrassing for the Ducks. Cory Perry with a truly classless maneuver. Wow, just wow. Fucktard:/
Perry goes "mmmeeeooowww!"
Wow Perry..what a tough guy. Must have seen the tape of Bieksa jump Stalberg. Take that shield off and fight like a man.
I give it to Ballard just because it was a p**** move on Perry's part.
Its funny since Ballard has beaten Perry in fights twice prior to this. Don't understand jumping him. You didn't see the canucks jumping players last week when they got dominated by the ducks... Perry is nothing but a sore loser.
I hate Perry, he is a puss. he just jumped Ballard for nothing.
"Notice Perry did not try to go after Kassian, Volpatti, Bieksa, or Weise." Haha! You mean the human punching bags, Kassian, Volpatti, Bieksa, or Weise?
peryy is a bitch
not a big fan of jumping a guy.or not backing off and starting apart .this wasnt a fight was jumping
That was pathetic on Perry's part. If you want to fight, fine....but drop your gloves and face the guy like a man. Perry didn't even give Ballard a chance. Can't wait to see Perry get his rear end kicked the next time around
PERRY is a punk .....A sneak attack on a much smaller player ...what a weasel ! hockey's version of the gay society
perry with the win.
looks like win perry but i dont think ballard knew he was in a fight.why did perry jump him?
Perry trying to give the crowd something to cheer about because his team laid an egg last night.
Was this a fight? If it was i guess you give it Perry!
Remember when you got your arse kicked by Datsyuk, Perry? Good times.
I'm not sure what exactly this was. Does anyone in Vancouver have any heart?
Good to see a canuck/goalie slasher take a few to the chin.
Talk about taking one for the team. Ballard took one on the left cheek and another on the right. Lesson today kids is to not drop the gloves if you don't plan on throwing a punch.
Who cares how the fight starts, a fights a fight. Good job by Perry. The fight didn't last long enough for the announcers to claim Ballard is the second toughest pound for pound.
Perry crushed him.
Perry is a chicken, would never actually fight someone when they are ready, jumped him, spineless,,,,
to bad it wasn't one of the pussy sisters!
I think Ballard was just trying to go down on Perry
coward move on Perrys part, basically jumped Ballard. weak his teammate Belesky was a G and traded blows with Bieksa and Volpatti.(lost both)
Sooner or later Ballard is going to kick the crap out of Perry for that.
Can't call a win for either guy, definitely a draw. Perry only fights guys when they don't expect it then jerseys them before they get their gloves off. Always hated perry. He's just lucky edler isn't a fighter, guy is a friggin brick and would have destroyed him. Ballard challenged Perry numerous times but he pussied out. U SUCK PERRY!!!!!!!
Perry jumped the guy. Can't win one that way with me. Last time he pulled that stunt...Mr Lady Byng, Pavel Datsyuk, kicked his azz.
Corey P U S S Y jumps a non-fighter cuz he could....CLAP, CLAP
Ballard gets the win simply because of Perry's puss move.
Perry must have read the Vancouver fighting playbook before this one, it's almost like he should have been wearing their uniform.....
win Corey Haim
may have seemed like a puss move, but anyone watching the whole game, especially the 2nd and 3rd would understand this a little. Also, these guys have gone twice before, with Ballard being the initial mugger in 2011... look at the history.
I think Perry also took Ballard's lunch money while he was at it.
Not even close, win for Perry
I gave Perry the win looks like he landed more punches.Looks like he landed the only punches.Lets face it he smashed his face in.Perry won.
it's a good thing Corey found his way into hockey or he'd be stuck stealing old ladies purses down at the local park/shopping mall. I hope Corey just got a misconduct because that was NO fighting major,.. draw for the lameness.
haters gonna hate, cp with the win, talk shit get hit, got the jersey over and refs had to save his ass, anyone that votes Ballard with the win needs to stop watching hockey, or sports in that matter.....
Pretty easy win for Perry, but then again he was fighting a Capuke. Hard as it is for me to admit it, I felt a little sorry for Ballard--it takes a special person to lose to a little punk like Perry. Come to think of it, why isn't Perry on the 'Pukes?
Ballard didnt want none...Perry with the win.
